A wee bit of The Glenfiddich’s history…
The Grant family has owned Glenfiddich Distillery since they started this distillery here in 1886;it has come a long way since then. Today it is the most famous whisky distillery and brand in the world. Glenfiddich is reliant on the tiny gushing stream high above the distillery called the Robbie Dhu.
It’s come a long way since 1886 and Glenfiddich is now exported around the globe. Yet the whole enterprise depends on one tiny, gushing stream that comes out of the hillside just above the distillery. It’s called the Robbie Dhu, and along with malted barley and a bit of yeast, it is the main ingredient.
Discover the art of coopering at Britain’s only cooperage with a visitor centre, see the skilled coopers and apprentices at work. Each year the cooperage make and repair an average of 100,000 casks. Savour the smells of the bustling workshops and have a go at building their demonstration cask.
At Speyside cooperage they rely on oak, as this is the only wood that can be used to produce cask for quality wines and spirits as it prevents seepage and allows the contents to breathe without spoiling the flavour
Sit back relax in the comfort of your vintage Bentley,a nostalgic trip down memory lane when the world went at a slower pace.
Take in the breath-taking scenic landscapes of Spey side as we drive along by the River Spey, the river that feeds the distilleries that distil our Uisge Beatha.“The Water of Life”
